Sampson Tangombu Chiragiaa, the Member of Parliament for Navrongo Central, has firmly guaranteed the residents that he won’t stop working until the stadium, which was started under the current administration years ago and is eventually finished and made available for use.

It would be recalled that the MP filed a question that demanded the Sports Ministry’s attention on the floor of Parliament. 

In the response of the Minister for the Sector, Mustapha Yussif, it was promised that the facility would be completed by close of year

“Rt Hon Speaker, the Youth Resource Centre/Sports Stadium forms part of the ten (10) regional youth facilities being constructed in the then existing ten (10) regions of Ghana. The initial plan was to start and complete all the ten centres within a year as of 2017. Strenuous efforts were made to ensure that deadlines were met. Unfortunately, due to resource constraints we missed our target.”

“Rt Hon Speaker, we have had to stagger the projects, especially, the second phase, by considering the completion of five (5) Centres each year, beginning from 2022. I am happy to inform this august house that the second phase of the first selected centres: Axim; Dunkwa- on-Offin; Wa; Dormaa Ahenkro and Koforidua are near completion with the necessary fittings and auxiliary works progressing steadily. bon For this year, 2023, the Youth Centres in Ho, Yendi, Nyinahini, Kaneshie and Navrongo are earmarked for completion. I wish to assure this august house that, the contractors will soon move to site and the project will complete by the close of the year,” the Minister for Youth and Sport, Mustapha Yussif, said in response to the questions raise by the MP for Navrongo Central.”

The assurances by the Minister were not enough for the MP for Navrongo Central. Mr. Tangombu Chiragiaa, speaking to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show mentioned that when he pressed the Minister further, the Minister gave the assurance that the contractor would be back on site by close of the month of within the first week of April, a situation the MP promised to keep a close eye on. 

“My problem was not just about the completion. This project was supposed to be completed in 2018 yet years down the line, we are still here and don’t even know what is happening. The question I followed up with is, when would the contractor be going to site? If the contractor goes back to site, then we would be sure that at least someone is working on it. When I asked that, he said the contractor would be going to work on it by the end of March or early April,” he said.

The MP continued to say, “by the end of March or early April, I would be in his office [the Sports Minister], to ensure that for the stadium, the contractor is on site and work is ongoing.”
